therapeutic

Over the past couple of weeks, Leah has mentioned a couple of times that her foot was hurting. Not enough to make much of a difference in her days (she has every intention of going trick-or-treating tomorrow, for instance), so it didn't seem like a big deal, but it wasn't getting better either, despite the ace bandage and some new, supportive hiking shoes. So today we got an x-ray and it ends up she has an avulsion fracture of the fifth metatarsal. Stylish new footwear until we visit orthopedist tomorrow:
On the up side, the same day included purchase of some cashmere for a commissioned neckwarmer...
and arrival of 2 skeins of Noro received in exchange for some sheepie stitch markers.
Feet? :-(

Hands! :-)

I am so sorry about the foot! Hope that it doesn't take anything invasive to heal it. =(

Happy cashmere and Noro though!

Please tell her I hope her foot feels better soon!

I love the picture of Leah holding the cashmere--she looks downright gleeful!

Avulsion fractures are the pits. My stupid finger is still swollen and stiff. Take care and rest up, Leah.

Can't wait for the newest neck warmer photo. I'm totally wanting to make some of those but don't have time . . . yet!
